Is it possible to have visual sound effects on my Samsung 55ES7550F Smart TV when playing music CDs on my Samsung Home Theater system?

why would you play music with a TV? What happen to the Hi-fi?

Haven't heard the term Hi-Fi in many years.

Home Theater systems play music CDs, Video CDs & DVDs and mine plays radio too. The sound system is comparable to the last stereo system I owned about 8 years ago when I bought my first Home Theater System. My phone has a visual display when I play music and it is better than looking at a picture of a CD with Track 1, Track 2, etc. down the side of the screen.

Option for that

This is how I would do it.

Connect PC or laptop with HDMI video output to HDTV. Open up desired trippy video effects using the software/screensaver of your choice. Meanwhile, your HT system plays back the audio track separately via the CD player through surround speakers.

Sounds good to me

That's a reasonable suggestion/idea. I don't have an HDMI port on my PC or laptop but I will have to check out other means of getting my laptop connected to the TV or maybe I can connect my PC via WiFi somehow. I will give it a shot and post it one way or the other.
